What to Wear: 5 Chic Grunge Pieces You Need for Fall

When Hedi Slimane debuted his version of YSL, ahem, excuse me, Saint Laurent, there was an outcry and backlash for some, and a cheer of pure joy for many, many, others. And increasingly, many, many more. I admit, I was on the fence. I sided with style.com’s review, that it was something we’ve seen before and not what we’d hope from a house that constantly produced incredible innovation for decades. But as I poured through Yves’ older shows and Hedi’s earliest work, and once I realized how well the separates from Hedi’s collection fit into every fashionable woman’s wardrobe, I was able to jump on board the chic train to Grungetown! Chic! Chiiiic!

Want to hop on board, too? No ticket required! Here are the basics to get you there safely and chicly, of course. First off?
